  • A very interesting introduction to the history of cacao and chocolade industry. Plentiful of historical objects to be seen in the museum. Facts and amusement in a very comfortable combination. Special...  more »
  • A rainy day and hop we're looking for indoor activities to do. This museum is perfect for a few hours of his day. One travels over the year that traces of the evolution of the master chocolatiers. At the entrance we stumbled upon a lady with an exceptional home! Really very nice to start the visit. Small bag of chocolate and offered hot chocolate Cup. I really recommend. Only one downside: not really for children because it is quite complex and it's nothing playful.

  • The Chocolate Museum presents video and verbally the technique of making chocolate. Interesting to understand manufacturing techniques when you love chocolate. The material is presented in its evolution over time. Nice and small samples of chocolate tasting is very nice.

  • Not a must visit site... but it can be interesting. Your choice.
  • Fun for kids and chocoholics alike
  • First of all, I would not recommend this museum to any non-French speaking people. Before paying entry (6 euros/adult), we were assured there were descriptions in English. We were then given four tiny pieces of chocolate to sample and directed into a room where we were shown a really old-fashioned film clip about how chocolate is made... it was completely in French. To be fair, we were provided with a pamphlet that summarized the movie in English, but it was extremely brief and difficult to read while watching the film simultaneously. The rest of the tour consisted of four rooms of old machinery, chocolate boxes and advertisements that were amusing, but not exactly worth the entry fee.... Also, there were maybe 5-6 descriptions in both English and Spanish, yet probably 30 or so in French. At the end, we got a couple small sips of their hot chocolate, which was rich but not the best. The tour ended in their little chocolate shop with some of the most expensive chocolate I've ever seen.
  • Visit super interesting! Fast! A lot of tools in the field of chocolate! Beautiful story of cocoa! And a nice homemade shop! Chocolate hot home offered at the end of the tour! I recommend!

  • Museum of chocolate? a video and a visit of two rooms for the price is clearly abused! No visit of the factory which produces chocolate, prohibition of taking pictures, in short, to avoid!
